Dear IJP Families;
The warmer weather has arrived this week, just in time for all our major events! Thank you to Mrs. Swanson, Mrs. McKillip, Mrs. Wernicke, Mrs. Barnick and the honored guests who attended the Kindergarten graduation celebration this past Tuesday. The atmosphere was wonderful and our newly-minted first graders gave a joyous performance. Congrats to all the students and parents! The 8th grade wrapped up a wonderful year with great maturity, friendship, and enthusiasm. The 8th grade Awards and Dance were delightful on Wednesday and the Graduation Mass last night was beautiful. May God bless all our 8th grade graduates as they pursue the next step in their education!
At this point of the school year, all tuition should be paid in full. Please check your records for last payments and make arrangements for final outstanding fees for Extended Day and lunch balances. Report cards cannot be released if there are outstanding fees. Also, per state law, report cards must be held for any student that did not turn in the required dental or eye physical form by May 15th (as necessitated by specific grade levels). Please call the school office if you have any questions.
The new 10-month plan for the 2017-18 school year begins in July. Registration and Packet Turn-in date will be Tuesday, July 11th from 2 pm-7 pm. As always, you may turn in your registration packets any time before July 11th as well. Registration Packets were sent home this week with the youngest or only student in the family. Please check your packet immediately and pull out the new fundraiser raffle tickets and the letter of explanation for the new mandatory fundraiser. This will be replacing the old $175.00 check that was written for fundraising in the past. Raffle ticket money will be due on Registration Day on July 11th.
There will be Extended Day on the last day of school, June 2nd. Before and After Care will be at the regular time. The last day of school is a full day with regular lunch periods and classes.
As summer vacation quickly approaches, an additional reminder for your calendar and planning needs: School Office Summer Hours for the summer are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 am-11:30 am beginning June 12th. The School Office will be closed the week of July 23rd.
The updated, tentative 2017-18 School Calendar is posted under “Current Students, Forms and Links”. The last day of school and graduation date for next year has changed since the first posting. Please check if you are making long-term plans.
Have a safe and restful holiday weekend!
